Map # 1:  High overlook of Skunk Creek and the surrounding area of Peoria

Skunk Creek is located in Peoria.  The good habitat mentioned lies just east of 83rd Avenue with between Thunderbird Road to the south and Greenway Road to the north.  It also lies just east of the Loop 101.  A good way to get here would be to take the 101 to the Thunderbird Road exit.  Once exiting the 101, take Thunderbird Road a very short distance to Rio Vista Blvd.  Take Rio Vista Blvd all the way northeast a short distance as well until a dead end is reached at a few baseball fields and children's park.  Park here and follow the Skunk Creek Trail east past the 101 bridge and the 83rd Avenue bridge, where the good habitat will be just east of 83rd Avenue.  Once to the patch of trees, go inside the patch and look for birds, there seems to be more habitat once inside the patch than outside of it.
